A Prince and His Cat Visit Poem #311

The Prince & His Cat
by Georgia LV

Students - this poem came from a few funny places.  I really didn't know what to write about yesterday, and so as I often do, I began listing ideas.  Our cat Mini was stretched out in a sun puddle on the couch, and I admired him for a bit.  Subconsciously, I think that my daughter Georgia's recent poem, "That Dog" was still stirring in my heart, and of course I have always believed that it is important for children to have pets. From this mix of ideas and rememberings and observations, this poem emerged.

One might call this a poem with a threat...I mean...a poem with a moral.  It's a story poem with a consequence ending, just like life.

Hmmm...this has me thinking that this just might be the beginning of a Story Poem Week.  Would anyone like to join me in the challenge?

  1. The only pets my parents would let us have as kids were fish - not the most exciting pet. Thank you for taking me back to that time of longing.
